I really have enjoyed the training. I have found the entire series easy to learn and one of the best on-line training I’ve had. You go slowly enough for a novice to understand what you are teaching us and it is a well thought out pathway to knowledge. I have been able to build on the information you have already presented and I believe I am getting a good foundation from which to build.

I’ve run through all the content, I thought it was really clear and well put together.
